It was 1934 - in the grip of the Great Depression-that Elmer W. Matthews started Matthews Roofing Company Inc. in Chicago. In such a difficult economic environment, Mr. Matthews realized full well that only through unflagging dedication to service, excellence of workmanship, quality materials, unwavering dependability and affordable pricing could his business thrive. Since that time, those cornerstones have guided the family’s business principles in every generation.
Today, Matthews Roofing stands alone as Chicagoland’s premier roofing contractor, specializing in commercial, industrial, institutional, and residential roofing. And though our commitment to excellence has been steadfast throughout our history, our methods and our capacities have advanced dramatically.
Currently, we are able to run as many as 10 full-time production crews, each led by a skilled and experienced foreman backed by a team of fully-trained and equipped craftsmen-ready, willing and able to tackle any job, large or small. No matter how inhospitable the weather, how old the roof or how bad its condition, our service department is on top of it, repairing or replacing both swiftly and thoroughly.
And because safety is our top priority, Matthews Roofing is licensed, bonded and fully insured by:
- State of Illinois Contractors License No. 104-000191
- City of Chicago Home Repair License No. 5785
- City of Chicago Limited Business License No. 5786
